's last four addresses. you can set your watch by the regularity of president obama's state of the union speeches. he spends roughly the same amount of time on the same topics in the same order. the one exception was 2011 when he deviated a bit from the script in the aftermath of an event. the shooting in tucson, arizona. the president finds himself in the same environment on 2013, updating congress on how the country is doing following another horrific mass shooting. that leaves us with two possibilities from the president on tuesday night. either a moment history will remember because it's impossible to forget or simply another regularly scheduled update that comes from time-to-time as the founders intended. when we come back, the panel weighs in on how the president can make tuesday night historic. financial obstacles military families face, we understand. our financial advice is geared specifically to current and former military members and their families.
